Alternate Versions

Some versions delete the scene with Chong and Donna while Cheech hangs from the balcony. The scene jumps from when Cheech first goes over the railing to when he is trying to manuever his way to the elevator. Missing is when he discovers that the man at the door is Chong, that the patio door is now locked and what Chong and Donna do with the ice. See more »

Cheech and Chong's third film: Nice Dreams.
17 August 2005 | by Captain_CouthSee all my reviews

Nice Dreams (1981) was the second sequel to UP IN SMOKE. The lovable burned out slackers are selling "ice cream". But there nothing more than a front for there drug dealing (pot what else?). Sargent Stedanko is back from UP IN SMOKE. He's no longer the same straight laced cop. Stedanko has turned into the very element he's been trying to catch. The duo is stashing away some smoke for a rainy day. They want to pull off one big score so they could retire in the "tropics". Unfortunately, Sargent Stedanko and his motley crew of narcs want to bust them and lock 'em up forever. Can Cheech and Chong "retire" in luxury? Will Stedanko finally bust them? What will happen to the duo when they stray away from their favorite drug and experiment with others? How does the good doctor Timothy Leary fit into the picture? Watch NICE DREAMS and you'll find out!!

Another funny film from the team of Cheech and Chong. I find it to be hilarious. Not a classic by any means. Just a funny movie that stars everyone's favorite stoners.

Recommended.
